Strawberry & Peppered Steak Salad
Salads are so light and perfect for spring weather. Mixed with fresh fruit and protein, they are a great way to not only get your macronutrients in but your micronutrients, too! This salad has the perfect amount of healthy fats from the fresh avocado, and it provides a boost of antioxidants from the strawberries. It's a great staple meal with endless options for toppings. Get creative with this one and add some pickled red onions or blue cheese crumbles. Delish!Recipe & photography by April Hamilton
